Stand-up Paddleboarding in Great Britain is the essential companion to anyone curious about one of Britain’s most exciting water sports. Providing details on how to get started in stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) in a safe and environmentally friendly manner, this guide then suggests over thirty incredible places to SUP in England, Scotland and Wales.

Enthusiastic paddleboarder Jo Moseley captures the joy of SUP by weaving together her experiences with suggestions for your own adventures. These routes will inspire you to gaze at fell tops from Derwent Water, drift along the River Teifi, stroll along the Isle of Mull’s Calgary Bay or spot another SUPer on London’s Regent’s Canal.

Including information on each route’s difficulty, public transport, parking, refreshments and equipment hire, as well as stunning photography and overview maps, this book has something for both SUP enthusiasts and beginners. But most importantly, it exudes a passion for SUP which will inspire anyone who reads it.

Jo Moseley came to stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) aged fifty-one and describes herself as a ‘joy encourager, midlife adventurer and beach cleaner’. She’s built a reputation as a speaker, magazine contributor and as host of The Joy of SUP – The Paddleboarding Sunshine Podcast. In 2019, she became the first woman to paddleboard coast to coast, raising funds for 2MinuteBeachClean and The Wave Project along the way. A film about her journey, Brave Enough – A Journey Home to Joy has been shown at various festivals. She regularly features in magazines, and also has spoken at the Royal Geographical Society and at Women’s Institute events to try to get more women into paddleboarding. Stand-up Paddleboarding in Great Britain is her first book.
